I’m Ashley, a 19 year-old girl from a small city called Miri. I’m a baker and sort of a blogger and sort of a photographer, if you know what I mean. I’m currently pursuing a degree in Information Technology Management for Business at The University of Manchester.

It started at the age of 15, trying to bake a rainbow cupcake from scratch which tasted pretty awful. Back then, I was still using my mum’s 15 year-old hand mixer. My second bake was pretty bad as well but this time, it was a red velvet cupcake. Since then, I fell in love with baking. I got my first ever Kenwood standing mixer at the age of 16.  I also started to pick up my Canon 700D ever since.

Why the name ‘MUMUBAKES’, you may ask?

Back in the days, I thought this nickname was very embarrassing so I never wanted my friends to find out. It was a nickname given to me by my sister ever since young. It has absolutely zero relation to my real name. My siblings were the ones who suggested the name ‘MUMUBAKES’ so Mumubakes it is!
